Legendary guitarist Steve Vai is ramping up for the release of his upcoming album, The Story of Light—a sequel to his last solo studio outing, 2005’s Real Illusions: Reflections. While the collection was being mastered by the namesake of Bernie Grundman Mastering himself, Vai took a few minutes out to chat with pro audio bon vivant (and Pro Sound Network blogger) David “Mr. Bonzai” Goggin for a short video interview.
In a scant few minutes, Vai genially shares insights on everything from recently winning the 2012 Les Paul TEC Award, to collaborating with songwriter/old college buddy Amiee Mann, to upcoming touring plans, to working with Grundman across the span of decades, to even a hint of his next big recording project. This, from a guy whose next album has yet to be released! Bowing August 14, The Story of Light is currently available for online pre-sale orders through Vai’s website.
